The Way it Began selected for the 2014 Lookout Wild Film Festival

If you’re around Chattanooga, Tennessee from March 21-23, check out the Lookout Wild Film Festival (LWFF).  This year’s festival includes our short film, The Way It Began, starring Kami Swingle going back to her fishing roots — fly fishing for wild brook trout in the small mountain streams around the Shenandoah National Park. It’s the story of her passion for fly fishing and the belief that she can have it all: outdoors and fashion, wilderness and cosmopolitan.

Blood Knot Synopsis:

The Shenandoah Valley lies just two hours outside of our nation’s capital and offers some incredibly diverse freshwater fishing. It is hard to find mountain brook trout, spring creek rainbows and browns in such close proximity to some of the best smallmouth, carp, and musky fishing in the country. Twin brothers, Brian and Colby Trow, are natives of Virginia who took their love of fly fishing together and put it all on the line to ‘live the dream’ in the center of this unheralded fishing destination. More than 10 years and one nasty economic recession later, Brian and Colby understand the risks and costs of running a small business. Success comes with the price of long hours and being away from family, but it is time on the water together that keeps them connected. Selected for the 2014 Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) and the 2014 Rise Fly Fishing Tour Europe.
